Locals are voting on what they'd like a Texas elementary school named after Confederate General Robert E. Lee to be called.

A Texas elementary school named after Robert E. Lee could get a new name  -- but it might not be a better one.

Community members in one Austin neighborhood have voted on a unique list of potential names after many people said the name of the late Confederate general was offensive.

Some of the new names suggested for the Robert E. Lee Elementary School include Donald J. Trump, Harper Lee, Spike Lee and Bruce Lee. There's also "The Adolf Hitler School for Friendship and Tolerance," Fox 7 News reported.

According to the voting results, Trump’s name has the most support, with 45 ballots cast. Harper Lee has 30 votes, Spike Lee 4 and Bruce Lee 3.

"The Adolf Hitler School for Friendship and Tolerance," meanwhile, has 8 votes.

Still, at least 34 people have voted to keep the school’s original name. See the full list of names here

The school district will present the top three vote-getters to the board of trustees on May 23 for review, the Statesman reported.

Editor's note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims -- 1.6 billion members of an entire religion -- from entering the U.S.
